BUILD WALLS INSTEAD OF BRIDGES
Gianni DeVincent Hayes, Ph.D
Our Elected Officials
I am bothered by the fact that the very people we voted into office to look after and protect our citizens and Constitution are the very ones who are destroying it. Are they that comfortable in their jobs, thinking Americans don’t pay attention to votes, that they can just discard us?
In the article “Illegals Granted Social Security,” we are told that “The Senate voted…to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment--even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents. ‘There was a felony they were committing, and now they can't be prosecuted. That sounds like amnesty to me,’ said Sen. John Ensign, the Nevada Republican who offered the amendment…to strip out those provisions of the immigration reform bill. ‘It just boggles the mind how people could be against this amendment.’ The Ensign amendment was defeated on a 50-49 vote.” Look at the addenda to this article as to how our congress-people voted, and be sure to go to www.numbersusa.com for the most up-to-date information.
Even worse is this: “The US is spending your tax money for programs to help Armenians secure their borders. ‘US Department of State's Export Control and Related Border Security Assistance’ (EXBS) program continues to work with Armenian control officials, customs, and border guards to improve their prevention capabilities..." [statelists@STATE.GOV; Wednesday, May 17, 2006. ‘U.S. Assistance to Armenia--Fiscal Year 2006; Fact Sheet, Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs’; Washington, DC; www.state.gov/misc/52620.htm]. So, we can spend American taxpayers’ money to secure a small country’s sovereignty but not the world’s most—again, presumably--powerful nation?
And this: “Immigrants from Mexico and other non-European Countries can come to this country and get preferences in jobs, education, and government contracts [under] affirmative action or racial privilege. Recently, a vote was taken in the U.S. Congress to end this practice. It was defeated. Every single Democratic Senator except Ernest Hollings voted to maintain special privileges for Hispanic, Asian and African immigrants.”
So we should thank our elected officials for keeping our homeland safe, secure, and sovereign, and who give illegals rights belonging to hard-working Americans. We also should be in gratitude as well as to the Presidents Fox and Bush regimes for their much deliberated plot to destroy America. Don’t forget GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO and FTAA—so-called free trade agreements that in actuality strangle-held us and ruined and will continue to ruin the labor force in our country. We also have to thank the pro-illegal agents for bringing about the outsourcing of American jobs and the insourcing of alien labor to do jobs Americans should have. This is not haphazard. This is not just a bunch of Mexicans or other illegal aliens individually and in groups deciding to cross the border for a better life…no, this is a movement—a well thought out, effectively implemented and mobilized plan. States Steven Yates, “In the early years of the 21st century, elites in three nations—the United States, Canada, and Mexico—are busy creating a new political configuration called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) [that] would broaden and deepen the relationship between the three nations [transactional] created in 1994 through the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in dramatic ways.”
Adds Taft, “These are radical organizations that can be found in many American high schools and most colleges. They hate America and love its enemies. They are brimming over with race hatred, anti-Semitism, and a history of communist leanings and communist support. They have an irrational anger aimed at their stupid benefactors.” [See photo; from Wally Skalij. LA Times. 05-02-06, taken from The Sun.]
In itself, La reconquista [a radical movement by Mexicans to “reconquer” parts of U.S.] is in full swing: “’Demographically, socially and culturally, the reconquista of Southwest United States by Mexico is well underway,’ [says] Harvard University professor Samuel P. Huntington in 2004.” In that same article, author Valerie Richardson writes, “Then there’s the Mexican Movement, which wants to ‘reconstruct’ the United States as an ‘indigenous’ nation called Anahuac.” We can also thank the lobbyists and PR people, who have ties with the Mexican and American governments, for creating sweet deals and wonderful positive promotional strategies for the illegal aliens. And then there are the Spanish-language television channels that told the half-million-plus demonstrating illegals where to go to protest, what to bring, and how to do it. “…They were organized, promoted or publicized for weeks by Spanish-language radio hosts and TV anchors….In addition, swamping America with illegal immigrants balkanizes the country, lowers the standard of living and sinks America into second world status, necessary for the implementation of a Pax American FTAA system.”
And these are only some of the problems we face.
Remember what Theodore Roosevelt said in 1907 on immigration: "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but is something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people" [emphasis added].
Look at how our elected officials are representing our views and our desires:

“The Senate…believe[s] that American workers should have to compete with millions of imported foreign workers. The Sen. Bingaman amendment put some limits on the damage to the American worker, [but] the 18 Senators[who] … showed that they apparently have no limits…voted to keep in the bill a provision that the Heritage Foundation announced on Monday would allow corporations to import more than 130 million foreign workers over the next 20 years! Senators McCain and Kennedy are responsible for the original language that would have led to such an absurd conclusion. NumbersUSA has been railing against that provision for a year.
